A Florida mansion with extremely lavish design features is believed to be the most expensive listing in the country, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The newly-built 60,500-square-foot home located in Hillsboro Beach, between Boca Raton and Fort Lauderdale, is currently listed at a whopping $139 million. The design of the breathtaking 11-bedroom, 17-bathroom home, called “Le Palais Royal,” was reportedly inspired by the architecture of the Palace of Versailles in France. Encircled by a gate decorated with 22-karat gold leaf, this magnificent dwelling is bursting with the finest amenities, including a $2 million marble staircase, 30-car subterranean garage, and an 18-seat IMAX theater with a 50-foot-widescreen. And if the state-of-the-art security system is not up to par, there are also kennels on the lower level built specifically for guard dogs—for extra protection.
The property’s extraordinary level of opulence does not end with its interior. Just outside, there is a 4,500-square-foot infinity-edge pool complete with an LED-lit, double-loop water slide and—perhaps the most jaw-dropping feature of all—a glass-bottomed Jacuzzi suspended above the pool.
Miami-based architect Denio Madera is the interior designer responsible for the wall-to-wall splendor of this awe-inspiring abode, which sits on 4.4 acres, stretching from the Atlantic Ocean to the Intracoastal Waterway. The home is currently in the final stages of construction and, according to the owner’s representative, the home is projected for completion by late 2015.
